Well, Reflexive still haven't replied. Which is annoying.
RealArcade declined. They complained about several things. They didn't like the 'bland' gameplay. Which is a fair enough thing, provided you actually mean something by it.
They also, rather interestingly, complained about 'a lack of storyline'. Then they reamed off statistics about '80% of our users are female' that are already plastered all over their website. You can't just throw statistics at me and call it a review. It was only about a paragraph long.
Hear this, RealArcade, I submitted the game as an 'alpha'. It's not a finished game. It's not supposed to have a story. It's not supposed to have super-awesome graphics. And it's not supposed to 'resonate'.
I guess their reviewers missed all of the mindless Zuma clones and match 3 games.
I'll leave you with this quote. I swear to god this is what they said.
"In playing the game we found it to be to centered on logic and our users are 80% female"
I guess female users just won't understand logic, huh. They're not the only ones.
